Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O Christe, Wahrheit und Leben,
wir bitten, Du wollest uns geben,
Deinen Geist von oben
mit seinen heil'gen Gaben,
das Dein Wort rein hie auf Erden,
mög' verkündigt werden.

2 O gieb, das die Red' vorhanden,
recht erklärt werd' und verstanden,
laß es ihr gelingen,
und sie unser Herz durchdringen,
zu Lob und ehr' Deinem Namen,
darauf sprechen wir Amen.
